Yes, my streak is still going. I'm just working a lot, so I'm not always able to get on Spark People.
Saturday (354)- We had two basketball games through the day. One was twenty minutes west of us, the other was 30 minutes east. It kind of chewed up the whole day. I did get a one mile walk in with hubby, about 20 min.
Sunday (355)- Always a busy day! Church in the morning, then an extra shift of work in the evening. I managed a one mile walk early in the morning. This one was about 19 minutes.
Monday (356)- I had trouble sleeping last night. I probably had caffeine too late again. I tend to do that at work. I went on a longer walk today, 1.9 miles in 34 minutes. I made it up to the cemetery again to pray.
Friday Hubby called me on his way home and said he needed a night out. I was very quick to respond, "YES!" As I was getting dressed nice (not too fancy, but nicer than my everyday mom clothes) hubby was cooking eggs for the kids. I came out to show him how good I looked, and before he looked up he said, "Why don't we just save some money and eat eggs with the kids. We can get some popcorn at the movie then." Sternly, I responded, "Do I look like I want to eat eggs with the kids!"
Hubby quickly redeemed himself and took me to Dolce in Omaha. It was excellent! I highly recommend it. We then went to the Imax in CB and saw the new James Bond movie. Again, I highly recommend that. It's the first Bond movie I've liked in a long time. They're getting back to what James Bond is supposed to be. So, after swinging and missing on the first pitch, Hubby hit a homerun.

I slept hard last night, and again this morning after everyone left for work and school. I think I got ten hours total sleep!
Feeling good today, and the weather is nice, so I went for a long walk. My knees haven't felt the best, so I've done a lot of walking lately. Today I totaled 3.35 miles in 61 minutes. It felt great, and I even made it back up to the cemetery for more prayers today. It's been a very peaceful and beautiful day.
Now, to go get the kids from school.

Wow! I am really tired! I worked until midnight at my Omaha job last night, then turned around and worked at 7:45am at my small town job. Not much sleep in between. I managed surprisingly well at work today and felt pretty alert. After work, I went on a quick walk to get my workout in. I was just over 0.5 mile from my house when I realized I was starting to get a little dizzy. I made it home ok, and ended up doing 1.2 miles in 22 minutes. I don't have any energy left, so I am really looking forward to bedtime tonight. I think the kids will be in charge the rest of the evening, and hubby is picking up dinner. No more work for this girl today.

I finally squeezed in a longer walk today. After napping again, not quite as long as yesterday, I got my day started. I feel pretty good. I managed 1.8 miles today in 35 minutes. I'm working so many hours that I've decided I need to take back my exercise a notch, so I don't over do it. I've noticed I've had an easier time this week eating better. I really haven't strayed from my eating plan. I feel really good about that, since I even did well at a buffet on Sunday.
Enjoy the sunshine Iowa!
